The consequences of the bug isn't noticeable at the moment, but potentially
it can be seen on the devices like Switchtec (when multi-portness is finally
added). Anyway it's better to fix it now, than to wait for obvious bug.
Additionally as I said the originator of the code should have used BIT_ULL
instead of the pure bit shifting.
